A Philadelphia man is being sought in the weekend shooting death of a teenager during a dice game in the county.              

Marcelo Young is being sought in the death of 18-year-old Kesley Ingram during the dice game at a trailer off a County Road 737 east of Bloomo Junction Saturday afternoon.

Several people were involved in the game. They were all there with permission, Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell said.            

An altercation broke out about 2:30 p.m. and  Ingram, whose address was listed as Louisville, was hit in the right buttock. He was transported to Rush Foundation Hospital in Meridian where he died.

Sheriff Waddell said Young is being sought in the murder. As of Tuesday morning, he had not been apprehended.

Sheriff Waddell asked for the public’s help in finding Young. He warned that anyone who might be hiding out or helping in any way will be prosecuted for harboring a fugitive.

Ingram’s Facebook page had a video from 2018 labeled “Dice game” where large amounts of cash were bring flashed around on the steps at an apartment complex. There are numerous other photos where he is showing large amounts of cash.
